the law because they feel like they are losing is wrong. what? by ensuring that all voters get to cast ballots? why on earth would a republican governor want to decrease early voting? well, it could be because the democrats aren't losing, they're actually kicking butt in early voting. according to an internal obama campaign document today that is exactly the case. here's what that document reveal reveals. in florida over a third of expected voters have already voted. as you can see early voters 50% voting for president obama. obama, 44% for mitt romney. election day that means mitt romney has to get 53% of the vote in florida if he's going to win. so that is a pretty hefty tag to run up. that's all according to the obama campaign. in iowa over a third of voters have already voted there. and among those early voters, you can see 64% of those are supporting barack obama. 35% of them are supporting mitt romney. and that means that mitt romney is going to need to win 59% of election-day voters. in north carolina, nearly half of all ballots have already been cast. and of those who have alr
. >> oh, yes they change the law and make the crimes legal. this is what obama understood in april of '08. he nailed it. he said these guys changed the rules of the game. allowed them to operate by like bandits, and it was done under george w. bush's watch. there isn't difference between romney and bush. >> that raises the critical question. why doesn't the romney campaign say look at the parallel of george w. bush it seems to be a winning argument. >> and it's an accurate one. we lost the populous in obama. interest is no spirit there. there is no guts. that's why he lost the first debate. he's not feeling our pain. the pain is very widespread. if you lost your house 50 million americans have lost their homes or they're going to lose it. they have to change neighbors give up schools. their kids think they're losers. they did something wrong. this guy is not addressing this. >> eliot: was he more akin to the plutocats that you write so persuasively about in your book. >> i think by invocation and personality he's a techno contract. he could be member of the plutocats if he wanted to. that
point and that is that there are state laws that deal with voter fraud or intimidation, and those laws can be invoked to go after those who are trying to deny the american people or deny the people of a particular state an opportunity to exercise their franchise and they ought to be enforced. there are battalions of attorneys now preparing for i election day but we have to keep in mind that certain tricks and tactics that have been used up to this point could and are aimed to try to discourage people from voting. you wonder why can't we have an up or down vote on the president of the united states without trying to confuse people for deprive them of their right to vote. people playing this system and creating phony issues or trying to deny people an opportunity to vote, they ought to be held accountable, and the way to do it is through not only filing lawsuits but use available laws to take action against them. >> cenk: thank you so much for joining us. really appreciate it. >> thank you very much. >> cenk: great to hear from congressman kucinich. when we come back, ben is sitting in l
sister-in-law came upstairs. we've got a two-story house. she was downstairs. a guy had come up to the door that we have downstairs in a room and started shaking saying, i'm brian let me in. let me in. i'm in trouble. let me in. that scared the hell out of her. a guy we don't know at all. she ran upstairs, called the police and said can you help me with what is going on downstairs. i went down and there was a crazy guy in our yard. he had been all over the neighborhood. he had gone to four different houses. he threw a stone through a starbucks, etc. when i looked outside, he was in the driveway. thank god the cops had shown up. he's yelling at the cops, he won't back down. the police started walking towards him and towards the house. you know what he did, he bolted to our backyard and then broke down our back door and was in our living room. at this point i have jenny my sister-in-law, my wife, my newborn daughter, they were curious. they wanted to see what was happening with the police i got them upstairs right away. i turned on the lights and let the cops in. it all happened t
the health care law that will pay primary care physicians more money. >> stephanie: right. that's what i'm saying people want to blame obama for everything. it becomes a punch line. >> and if you tell them it is untrue they say no, no no no. and go on. >> stephanie: yes. [♪ "world news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: mitt romney took his claim that president obama has stolen $716 million from medicare, do the next level, seniors mostly likely will be unable to see specialists because of obamacare. >> did you see the one too i think in virginia where he say there was a barbecue place that went out of business and blamed it on obama. and it turns out they had a lot of health care violations -- >> they were washing their hands in poop. >> yeah. and he is attacking gas prices there are videos in the kiosks so it's really throw anything at the wall and see what sticks -- >> that smacks of desperation. >> it does. >> stephanie: on the doctor front, as we know mitt romney's staff has said they are not going toet let their campaign be dictated by fact checkers. he said i
the role of the criminal law in drug control policy as much as possible while protecting health and safety. >> despite all that evidence we're beating our heads against the wall. we have presidential candidate who act original in their thinking, but when they get in, they become carbon copies of their predecessors. what is it about the political inability or the public unwillingness to support issues. >> it's very hard and unusual for the president to lead. look at gay marriage, you provided leadership, and then years later president obama said me too. he's following. in '53, fdr didn't lead, he followed the rest of the country. obama came in. he had made three commitments when running for president four years ago. he said i'll roll back the federal war on marijuana. i'll change these mandatory penalties and allow federal funding for needle exchange. lo and behold he made good on all three in the first three months and then he backed away. first because the republicans became in control and then the old forces got back in there again. i'm hoping he'll have a second term and have something
a yes in washington state, a yes in maine will make marriage equality the law of the land. >> in those three states. >> bill: right. in minnesota a yes would put it in the constitution banning it. >> right. >> bill: so we want a yes vote in maryland, maine, and washington, and a no vote in minnesota. >> right. the polling vote looks positive in all of the forward-leaning states. maine, maryland, and washington. it looks possible in every one of those states -- and as i mentioned last time the caveat is people don't want to tell pollsters on the phone that they are against marriage equality. >> bill: uh-huh. >> but i think we're poised to win maybe one of these -- at least one of these, and potentially more, and it would be historic just to win one. >> bill: yeah. has president obama helped the movement? >> yeah, there's no doubt in my mind that him coming out in support of same-sex marriage on may 9th of this year, made a huge difference. at that point people have to grapple with, wait a second this guy wasn't for it -- well he was for it, then he wasn't for it a
with voter i.d. laws and voter suppression efforts the latest impediment could create another hurdle for some voters to overcome. joining me now is raul grijalva, cochair of the progressive caucus. congressman, thank you as always for joining us. >> thank you. >> eliot: one of the major impediments earlier this year were these crazy voter i.d. laws. the courts seem to have struck them down. that's a victory for democracy. are you satisfied by in large with how the courts have handled those cases? >> i think the courts handled it appropriately. and handled it based on the law. and that has relieved a lot of pressure but at the same time, you know, the organizations that are out there talking about fraud, you know, signs are appearing in latino neighborhoods in arizona saying fraud is a federal crime. will you go to jail. and i'm sure we'll have poll challenges. i'm sure we'll have people trying to intimidate people as they go to vote. particularly in poor communities in my state because that vote is going to be large.
signed it into law but it has never been implemented yet. and wall street has its clause in our these regulations will be rewritten. and there has been no criminal prosecution. i cannot believe given our behind obama has been to wall street they can't stand him. the truth is if you look at romney's numbers eight of the top biggest givers were wall street firms with goldman sachs being a million dollars on top of that. the last time goldman sachs was at the top of obama's list. >> cenk: is president obama making a mistake here. it might be too late but did he make a mistake these four years being overly kind to the wall street guys, no arrests all the bailouts in the world and they gave $10 million to his opponent any way. what was the point of all that? >> well, i mean, look, you have to recognize one thing. mitt romney is one of them is a wall street fat cat. founded bain capital, made hundreds of millions of dollars investing in private equity. wall street and bain capital have done tons of deals together. they've been scratching each other's backs for years. as a relative mat
. in the case of nepal, what we've done is appeal to the mother-in-laws. the mother-in-laws are the ones who control things as to how that birth is going to go. we talk to them this them about the health of their grandchildren, and of course they want healthy grandchildren. then we teach them why it is so important to give birth in a clean place clean sheets. that's one example and every country has something a little bit different about the cultural traditions. you really have to work at the community level of people who live there and understand. a lot of our staff are from these communities. they know the culture, the tradition, and try to change those from within. >> gavin: in the united states, most your efforts on the health side are where? >> we actually work in two big areas. health and education in the u.s. in the united states it's all along the southern part of the united states. and it's really in the poorest communities primarily rural communities. on the health side, the big issue in the u.s. is childhood obesity. we work a lot in that area. >> gavin: in what ways? prevention a
boggling that they have been able to pass laws on this lie. but when a law isn't created to solve a problem, it is created to be a problem, and that's why we have gotten so many governors to veto these things. but what we're most worried about now are the dirty tricks that come out. we have seen robo calls going out in spanish, telling people to vote on the 8th not the 6th. >> stephanie: and you can vote by phone. >> exactly. >> stephanie: you would think if they are so confident they wouldn't have to resort to this. >> yeah, we saw the chairman of the republican party four or five years ago, say we can win without voter suppression, without vouter fraud and we can win on our ids. and that should be the motto. you do have people like governor snyder in michigan bob mcdonald in virginia who have taken great political risk but you have got a party that in too many places have been overrun by extremists who are willing to do whatever they can to win, and that's not what this country is about. >> stephanie: ben, i'm looking at the story in wisconsin, the romney wat
in congress. passing or proposing law after law after law that limited women's reproductive access somehow takes away women's rights, and then when the democrats are freaking out about it, and talking about it and sending out emails republicans sit back and smile and say, well, you guys are the ones bringing up abortion. you're just using this to distract people, and i think it is frustrating for so many people because the democratic talking point focus on abortion is directly action from republican's legislative focus on it and what is happening lately with the republicans making ridiculous comments about rape is when they are being forced to explain their position. and when they try to answer the reason why they don't think women should have abortions if raped, it is going to come out and affect people. >> bill: yesterday senator ron johnson on fox news was asked by chris wallace about the abortion issue, and ron johnson again there as a surrogate for mitt romney, said it's no big deal. abortion is not a big issue, to use his phrase it doesn't even move the rada
and the first responders whether they be firemen or health-care workers, law enforcement, they are local people employed by local governments. is no replacement for local or state officials, and in florida we have some tremendous responses by both sides in all of these areas, but there is also a very special role for the federal government, and when we sigh in new york the subway system, the element of infrastructure that will be required to be built the financing that will be required. the federal government no doubt will have to play an important role. also the logistics of moving huge amounts of food and equipment that is needed oftentimes the federal government can be a partner with the local officials. governor christie talked about the role of the us army of engineers. and again, this is a rue neek role of the government. >> jennifer: well, it will be very interesting to see. i strongly believe the momentum is in the president's favor in florida. glad you are confirming that. thank you so much for joining manager inside of "the war room." >> joy: up next he
came up with to have states pass laws. will that succeed? >> it's halfway there. enough states need to agree to it, that collectively equal 270 votes, the winning number to win the vote. it started with maryland, and if you google" national popular vote plan" and it should end it. >> eliot: and if california jumps in. >> california has signed on. that's right. if mitt romney wins the popular vote and barack obama wins the electoral college vote then i think the electoral college will blow up. it will explode. republicans won't stand for that that. >> eliot: jack welch will say its conspiracy. there are other flaws in the voting system. there rampant with the intellectual problems that we have to deal with. >> the point of origin is the constitution which does not confirm the affirmative right to vote. early on the framers passed it over to the states. everything became localized which is why we have 13,000 different voting districts with its own ballot design. ballot designed by count supervisors, while i respect them they're not designers. that's why you get the butterfly ballot.

[ applause ] >> bill: first of all chris is that the same thing he was saying in massachusetts? and what does that mean? >> yeah, this -- this idea of when he was running for president, the run-up to the 2008 run he was really taking advantage of showing his -- to the conservative community. remember this was a speech in south carolina. and he talked about this issue that "the boston globe" had finally gotten some documents from -- during his governorship recently and ran a story last week that he really pressed very hard to keep from changing the actual bit certificates in massachusetts to reference a second parent as opposed to mother and father. and this -
